- BRS Extra Thick Gel Super Glue
Sticks to everything even underwater By Tek on 11/25/2014Tek would recommend this product to a friendIt is thick and has good holding power. I was able to glue frags to rocks, overflows, back glass. Even a large 5" X 6" acro colony stuck to the side of a rock.
I will recommend this extra thick version over the regular gel glue.
Worked well By The reefdrunk on 11/17/2014The reefdrunk would recommend this product to a friendTook a little longer to dry then I hoped. But it did do the job. Just make sure the pieces you are glueing are dry. I took a hair dryer to mine for a few seconds. Then handled them carefully for about 2-3 minutes.
Thick, but not Super. By Randy on 11/16/2014Randy wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWasn't impressed by this glue. The "bang-for-buck" is there, but once this glue hits water, it's done for. Would not adhere frag plugs to rock work. Probably great for other non-reef related applications.
Disappointed By Hasty on 11/9/2014Hasty wouldn't recommend this product to a friend+Tried using this glue to attach dry live rock together. It failed to bond the rock even after a prolonged period. On top of that, there is no pin or device to keep the nozzle clean on the bottle type so ended up tossing it. Fortunately I had a tube of bsi ic-gel that came with a fragging kit I bought and this glue did work and the cap contains a prong that keeps the tube spout open. BRS has some great products but not this one.
Awesome product By Daniel on 10/28/2014Daniel would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff is super thick and perfect for adhering every type of coral to frag plugs and live rock. I use this in conjunction with purple reef epoxy to glue my frags to rockwork. You really can't beat the value of this product! It lasts a long time with regular usage. I feel like I glue a lot of frags to my rockwork and cut a few frags a month and it lasts me 4 months easily.
Great Product By mattg on 9/23/2014mattg would recommend this product to a friendPut it on rock or frag plug out of the water and place it quickly in tank and don't move for a few seconds and it will hold. Apply under water you have to move plug back and forth to break bubble then hold for a minute. Great glue
Yes. By zakdigital on 8/27/2014zakdigital would recommend this product to a friendPayed twice as much for the SEACHEM REEF GLUE on amazon thinking it would be fine for a few small applications. WRONG. Had some horrible experiences trying to glue small frags into place. Taking 4-5 tries, getting glue all over the place, having it dry everywhere but the place where I needed it to. Had chunks all over the tank. Shrimp got it on his hands. Glue got on polyps. Tube cracked and ended up with glue all over my hands for weeks. Not re-usable since it doesn't seal fully after the first time you open it. Come on, you had one job...
The brs thick gel from the bottle was delightful to use. Pulled it out and glued precisely in minutes. No issues with sticking to things I didn't want it to. QUICK setting. At the low cost I am once again extremely satisfied with the care that BRS takes on all the products they stamp their name on. Stuff just works.
Don't worry about looking anywhere else, just buy a couple and call it a day!
Great quick setting glue By Jon on 8/13/2014Jon would recommend this product to a friendI used this on some recent zoanthid frags. Worked amazing! The glue set in about 10 seconds and was able to put in the tank right away. Highly recommend this glue for all your propagation needs. Adheres to rock and rubble as well as the frag disks with ease.
works well By shawn on 7/2/2014shawn would recommend this product to a friendPut it on rock or frag plug out of the water and place it quickly in tank and dont move for a few seconds and it will hold. Don't apply under water cuz it instantly gets a white haze coating and wont stick. I used the tube and would buy again.
Works as Described By JW on 5/27/2014JW would recommend this product to a friendI bought both the bottle and the tube and prefer the tube over the bottle. Both work well and are by no means runny... the glue stays where you put it.
It Works! By Marc on 5/15/2014Marc would recommend this product to a friendI've only used this to glue a couple of frags to plugs, but I am happy with the product so far. I think the thickness of the glue is just about right and it was easy to work with.
Meh...seems average. By Adam on 5/6/2014Adam would recommend this product to a friendI bought the Extra Thick 20g tube. Fairly disappointed. I had previously used Ecotech Coral Glue. This glue was slow to bond, and, as soon as it hit the water, a film develops on the glue surface and it makes it difficult for the glue to then settle into holes, or to grip onto any surface. Normally, CG will develop a film when it hits the water, but the glue underneath that film is still active. This glue, I would poke with my finger to smear it on to a rock, and it wouldn't even stick to my finger. Ecotech's you can't touch because it has so much adhesive force. I suppose you get what you pay for. If using OUTSIDE of the tank, this works just fine. However, if using in the water, I would venture to the Ecotech brand. Nothing against BRS, I love their stuff. This glue just has its place in the reef.

What is the 'flash point' of this glue? I am trying to determine if I would be allowed to put this in my checked luggage on an airplane. "a "flash point" at or below 140 F (60° C) indicates it is a flammable liquid and may not be carried in airline baggage." Thanks.
Bulk Reef Supply Hi Scott,
The flash point of Cyanoacrylate glue is between 75 and 79 deg C according to what i found here. http://creationwiki.org/Cyanoacrylate
I can't comment on whether or not it is ok to bring on a plane.
I hope this helps!
Have a great day :)
BRS offers the glue in two types – Extra Thick Gel and Thick Gel. Both are very inexpensive so we suggest trying both, you will find each one is best for different applications.We also offer the glue in 20 gram tubes which some reefers find more convenient.
Extra Thick Gel - This is extremely thick gel which works well when you need to fill uneven surfaces to bond them together or stand frags vertically.
Thick Gel - This is a thick glue somewhere between normal super glue and extra thick gel. We find this to dry faster and work best when you have to flat surfaces to bond.
